Ms. Shivers may get many calls from the public about some "amazing" illegal aliens families, but it seems to me that for all the supposed outcry from citizens about these families, remarkably few citizens are willing to provide sponsorship if it means dipping into their own pockets. A few weeks ago I read an article about the problems some border schools are having with students from Mexico attending illegally. One of the (Hispanic) board members said he had let one of the students stay with him so that he had a local address for registration. The board member seemed to think this was a worthy act. Apparently it never occurred to him that he was being "generous" with the taxpayers' money, not his own. He could and should have paid the boy's tuition rather than gaming the system. The point: Plenty of people are willing to say so and so "deserves" to be here, as long as they don't have to bear any personal responsibility.
